Yukon resource gateway project

The Yukon Resource Gateway Project will help upgrade over 650 km of road and build or replace numerous bridges, culverts, and stream crossings. Over $360 million in combined federal and territorial funding was announced with planned upgrades to the Indian River Road and Freegold Road in the Dawson Range and the Nahanni River Road in the Nahanni Range.

Personal firewood permits

If you wish to cut firewood for personal use, you need a Forest Resources Permit. Failure to have a permit or carry it with you when cutting or transporting wood could result in a fine.

This permit is free and authorizes you to cut up to 25 m3 (11 cords) of firewood for uses such as heating your home.

Get a permit at your local Compliance Monitoring & Inspection office. Permits are usually issued over the counter at the time of application.
